Sorry, I should have been more precise. The duplex setting on the 
win2k machine's nic should only matter in a lan situation.

It's certainly indicitave of a tcp level problem. I'd be interested in 
seeing tcpdump captures of the traffic near each computer. (if it can 
be duped on flat simple lan, that would be ideal, but if not, then 
captures on or near the computers involved.)

I'd be curious to know if it happened from the bsd side of things, 
perhaps with a telnet http request/post or perhaps perl.

We're probably into frontier-server--protocol-geeks territory now.
